What you will learn:

In this course, Paralympic gold medalist Dan Cnossen shares some of the methods he uses to deliberately set goals to achieve personal success over the long run. Using an action plan as a template, the class will identify ways to subdivide aspects of job performance, each of which can be analyzed in terms of relative strengths and weaknesses, in order to set short, middle and long-term goals for the individual and the team. An important tool for both leaders and individuals looking to orient and structure performance, the purpose of this class is to highlight the inherent tension between long-term goals and the demands of the moment, recognizing the importance of being able to fluidly navigate between the two extremes.

About the instructor:

Dan Cnossen was raised on a fifth-generation family farm in Topeka, Kansas. After successfully completing SEAL qualification training in 2003, he deployed numerous times in support of global special operations. As a SEAL platoon commander, he was severely injured in 2009 in Afghanistan, resulting in the amputation of both legs above the knees. Turning to sport for recovery, Cnossen began training full-time for the U.S. Paralympic ski team in 2011 as a cross-country skier and biathlete. He has since competed for Team USA in the 2014 and 2018 Winter Games and is the first male athlete to win a gold medal for the United States in biathlon, a sport that combines cross-country skiing with precision shooting. Cnossen holds a bachelor of science degree in English from the U.S. Naval Academy, a master’s in public administration from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and a master’s in theological studies from the Harvard Divinity School.
